I missed three pills while i had a cold, when I realized on Friday I missed that many I took one right away. I had sex that night and when I got home I took the remaining 4 pills. My first question, is 4 enough to cause alarm? my second is, if I used the pullout method is it possible that I might be pregnant.
No - there is no need for concern about taking the 4 pills at once although it is not recommended. However since you missed taking the tablets you can no longer rely on Ortho Tri-Cyclen for contraception. The "pullout" method is unreliable and you should see your doctor or pharmacist for emergency contraception. These are more effective the sooner they are taken.
